Unitas' son encourages New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees

METAIRIE, La. -- With Drew Brees in position to break Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas' record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass, Unitas' son has sent words of encouragement to the Saints quarterback.

A letter from Joe Unitas, which the New Orleans Saints posted on a team website, congratulates Brees for tying the record of 47 straight games last weekend in Green Bay.
Joe Unitas says he's a big fan of Brees and wishes him the best on Sunday night against San Diego. Joe Unitas says he knows his father, who set the record between 1956 and 1960, would want Brees to break it.
Unitas calls Brees "a role model for today's youth, a family man, and a humanitarian who cares for his community," adding that his father held those ideals above records. He died in 2002.

"Continue to be a leader for your team and the City of New Orleans. You're a great quarterback but even better man," Unitas wrote. "Stay healthy and safe this week and in the future. My family and I will be watching Sunday night cheering for you. Best of luck."
